“Disquieting Nature” evokes a sense of moving through the memory of a landscape and its music.

The first Delta blues songs told the story of black agricultural laborers and how they regained their liberty in a segregated and increasingly racist society. The rhythmic cadences, structures and narratives of those early songs were the starting point for artist Christine Meisner’s cooperation with composer William Tatge, during which the artists developed ideas of an “abstract blues” in the form of a video piece. “Disquieting Nature” will be expanded here into a video screening with a live concert by five musicians.


With: William Tatge (composition and piano), LD Brown (vocals), Anders Nilsson (guitar), Craig Akin (bass) and Kenneth Salters (drums)
